That there has been alot of talk lately about banning all sodas from restaurants (forgot which state)

Yet, there is still not a ban on restaurants allowing customers to leave and drive home when they have had too much to drink????? (In other words not enforcing designated drivers)

Every night every day of the week there are hundreds (maybe thousands) of drivers on the road that have had too much to drin.  Yet we're worried about soda?

Also, for the record, alcohol is loaded with calories too. If we are going to bad soda, we might as well ban alcohol too!!!!

That's kind of crazy! A couple of weeks ago I went to Wendy's and ordered a sweet tea (nothing else, just the sweet tea) and the cashier saw a tax pop up and asked the manager who told her that the tax was a sugar tax. I was taxed for buying a sweet tea because of the sugar in it BUT I wouldn't have been taxed for buying a triple bacon cheeseburger or whatever it is Wendy's sells. I don't eat fast food (we gave it up years ago) so I have no clue who sells what but I am pretty certain that the majority of the food is far worse for me than a sweet tea and it is ironic to be taxed for the extra sugar in the tea vs. being taxed for the extra fat in the food.

So they are going to take pop out of resturants...but not the fried and greasy foods?!? C'mon?!? Seriously??? How about people start taking charge of their own lives and eating habits and not relying on the government to do it for them. It's sad!
